I booked this hostel for me and my friend Juan at the last possible moment. When I arrived at 'Interlaken Ost' train station, I noticed that on the reservation I had no street address. Luckily at the tourist information centre at the station, they directed me and gave me a free map to get to the hostel. So if you... More

The hostel room is incredibly basic (wire framed bunk beds, just one bathroom). The cost is outrageous (but normal for Interlaken and Switzerland). The key here is the location. You can walk from the hotel/hostel to the train station to take you up the mountain and that's the key to being in Interlaken. Get up the mountain and spend all... More

Stayed at Funny Farm backpackers hostel for two nights while visiting Brienz & the Alps. The lobby and corridors look almost exquisite, however the rooms are average and lack any character whatsoever. The triple room with a bunk bed, cupboard, desk & chair got a bit cramped once the three of us put our bags down. Bathroom was tiny, with... More

Did I seriously make an account just to warn other travellers of my horrific experience at this so-called "hotel"? Yes. Yes I did. When I first entered Funny Farm Hotel (more like hostel, will be explained later) with my mother and brother, I was intrigued because it actually looked pretty nice, and the lady at the front desk was quite...

We stayed here for a couple of days while hiking the alps/skydiving. It's a great spot to settle in for the evening and relax/ have some drinks. They have entertainment in the evening and a pool to hang out at as well. The sleeping quarters are pretty much as would be expected. Nothing that will blow your hair back but... More

I stayed at Funny Farm for one night after a long day on the mountains. A friend I was with had recommended it as she stayed there on two different occassions. For a 3-bed room (for 3 people) it was about 35 euro. The rooms were clean and we had a nice view of the mountains. The staff was friendly... More

I will make this review a bit of a comparison between Balmer's Herberge and the Funny Farm since those are two of the bigger ones in Matten and I stayed with both. After spending two nights at Balmer's Herberge I decided to extend my stay in Interlaken but to move to another hostel. The Funny Farm is just a little... More

Great for young backpackers. The pool with a homemade slide looked fun. Great lobby area with bar and free wifi. Can book adventure trips right at hotel and meeting place in same yard. Restaurant in hotel looked fine. Breakfast not worth the 10 Franks (have to pay if in hostel). Rooms very basic. We had a private room and at... More
